Application: apelsin12 new and confused

Post by apelsin12 » 05 Jul 2019, 23:32

Hello! My name is Axel Vestin, I thought I'd try my hand at contributing some code.

I currently work as a software developer and I have some graphics experience, mainly in OpenGL and I'm a full time Linux user so It seems I'll fit right in! :geek:

I am new to contributing to bigger open source projects though, and I'm confused.

I found this issue:
https://gitlab.com/OpenMW/openmw/issues/5081

Which was a very low hanging fruit, which seemed appropiate, and fixing the typo is no problem, but where do I go from there?

Reading https://wiki.openmw.org/index.php?title ... ion_Wanted it explicitly states that I should fork on GitLab and clone locally and work from there

But https://wiki.openmw.org/index.php?title ... ing_Policy says that I should go through GitHub with my Pull Request?

Is that the offical right way?

Gitlab is the preferred method to my knowledge, we may need to update some of our documentation.
